I am a relatively new owner of 2006 M5 and had a question about brake life. I have ~22k miles on the car and the iDrive maintenance screen tells me I have 40,000 miles left on the front and 28,000 miles on the rear brakes. I am relatively confident that the brakes are all original, is this expected brake life? How many miles do people average on pads and discs? On replacement do you use stock or are there better options/value with aftermarket pads/discs?

I got about 40k a set. iDrive is a good guess however i would just wait for the sensors to trip since our cars have two sensors on the front and one on the rear.

Oem isn't that bad if you buy the pads online and not from dealership!

CarboTech? has the correct sizes as an alternative, but i think most people are running OE
